Subject Re: storage_volumes and cimi volumes include system volumes?
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 22:58:31 GMT
Hi Dies,

are these truly volumes (i.e., storage that as its own lifecycle, not
connected to that of the machine to which it is attached ?) If so, I
believe they should be included - if they vanish when the machine
vanishes, they are 'disks' not 'volumes' in CIMI lingo.
